When F8 launched and the whole world plus 3 users joined Facebook, many bloggers started crossposting their entries to their Facebook profile, in many cases if without knowing that they handed the credits of their submissions to Facebook.

As if this scare (and especially the noise in the feed reader) wasn’t enough yet, Plaxo is set to launch another
social media platform life stream aggregator for members tomorrow.
An early version of the not working new Pulse platform was rolled out on Friday and gave every early bird a taste of how frustrating a non working platform is. All in all, the minimal, already visible features (import your flickr and blog feeds) show no reason for anyone to sign up to Plaxo.
Nice would it have been if the early email address book service had given us a phletora of new features, but (non-working) feed imports are too little to launch as a social network. Especially since a service like MyBlogLog offers much more profile options and actually generates generates (minimal) traffic for bloggers.
Plaxo? Who cares?
I just imported 300+ email addresses to Plaxo, majorly bloggers, and less than 30% are present at the service. Unless something changes, and the Plaxo team reveals real and exciting features… the hype (what hype?) around Plaxo will never see the daylight.
Plaxo is an all time loser online. No matter what they try, the team doesn’t have the innovation spirit to set a new mark online. I’ld gladly stand corrected, but I don’t hold my breath.
